Ranch fencing normally refers to a fence where only posts and horizontal boards are used together to form a fence. This type of fence is more common on housing developments in the South East of England, particularly where there are covenants preventing fences over 900mm (approx. 3') in height.
Ranch fencing is simple to build. Consideration should be given as to whether 75mm or 100mm posts are required, post spacing is best at no more than 1.8m because horizontal timbers are more likely to sag in the middle. If this is not possible then smaller intermediate post can be utilised.
Board widths (for the horizontals are normally sawn 100mm or 150mm depending on the height of the fence. The higher the fence then normally the wider the board. This style of fence also sometimes mixes board sizes, say two at 100mm then one at 150mm wide, or, alternatively use planed timber for a more contemporary finish. These planed timbers could be finished with Osmo Country Colour for a high-end contemporary look.
This type of fence is very quick and easy to install but is not practical on taller fences because the horizontal spacing makes it easy for children to clamber up and over the fence.
